(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) Thom Salisbury has joined Dameron Communications as its new art director.

“As one of the Inland Empire’s leading public relations and advertising firms, we are proud to have Thom Salisbury join us to deliver the innovative, creative art direction our clients need to win in this completive environment,” says Carl Dameron, president of Dameron Communications.

Salisbury has 25 years experience as an art director and artist. Earlier in 2006, he started his own graphic design firm, Nebulous Studios.

Salisbury will keep Nebulous Studios active while working for Dameron Communications. Other Nebulous Studios clients include the City of Redlands Redevelopment Agency, the Downtown Redlands Business Association and 1st Valley Credit Union.

Previously, he was the senior art director for Pacific Coast Sportfishing, a national full-color monthly magazine focusing on sport fishing on the West Coast, including Alaska and Mexico.

“I helped make Pacific Coast Sportfishing a first-rate magazine,” he says. “I exercise a great deal of passion and enthusiasm when it comes to providing real value to people who trust me with their message and image, or the media I’ve worked with.”

Thom was also creative director for The Sun newspaper of San Bernardino County. His creative expertise was brought to bear on accounts including San Manuel Indian Casino in Highland, and the former Harris Department Store. He also served as assistant design supervisor for the Long Beach Press-Telegram and worked with Donrey Outdoor Media in Las Vegas.

Salisbury has a degree in fine art from Saddleback College, and also studied art at University of Nevada Las Vegas and California State University Long Beach.

Dameron Communications has been one of Nebulous Studios’ major clients this year. With Dameron Communication’s growing client list, and the start-up of new business, an art director with Thom’s creative prowess and energy was needed.

“I pride myself on providing creative that emphasizes branding, and effectively reaches the clients’ customers and encourages them to buy products or services,” he says.

“Solid design is essential on any sort of advertising materials, from 1-inch by 1-inch ads to trade show exhibit booths,” Salisbury points out. “I thoroughly enjoy making every aspect of visual promotion powerful and effective.”
